Empties

I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.

Re: Empties

Thanks for sharing!  There were a few things I've been interested in, so their reviews were helpful.  Even for other products I might not have considered, now my interest has peaked.  Isn't it so rewarding to see your own empties??  I love making progress towards clearing out and rebuilding my stash!

Re: Empties

It is so rewarding to finish them.  I admit certain things make me happy and other things make me sad.  My Dreamtone being empty was a sad moment, because I told myself I will use all of my Bright Expert (opened last June) before I get another Dreamtone.  I am going to miss it for a while.  Bright Expert is not my favorite serum but tossing a serum I paid $70 for is not something I want to do.

Re: Empties

I've been trying to use up my not-sô-favorite things first if expiry dates let me.  You'll be through it before you know it especially having fewer options open and available.  Thís thread is really helping with tidying up my product area.  Best thread idea ever!  I'm still surprised with how much stuff I had around that I was disregarding.

Re: Empties

Ladies I missed BT sooo much! Now that summer is over and I've been accumulating empties for 2 months I can't wait to finally throw everything in the trash after I post my pic :smileywink: None of my friends seem to understand why I have a bag full of empties collecting dust lol

August Empties: Short and Sweet Edition

 

Loves -

VS Pro Moisture FX Softening Lip Balm

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Amazing Concealer - Medium Beige... perfect shade.  That never happens with samples!

 

Just ok, meh - 

Shea Sugar Body Scrub - Hawaiian Kukui

Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask

Too Faced Bronzing Wardrobe - Chocolate Soleil was great, Endless Summer didn't even show up on my skintone.

 

Dislike - 

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion - Just another hotel-grade body lotion

Dr. Brandt dual fusion water - left me with black streaky eyes, wouldn't recommend

The Body Shop Coconut shower cream - great smell, but I need suds

Re: Empties

I need suds too.

Re: Empties

Haha, me too!  Not so much on my acid but for body wash I like bubbles or I don't feel clean!

What I have repurchased or will repurchase:

Yves Rocher gel washes - they don't dry out my skin and smell amazing.

Moroccanoil hair oil treatment - does amazing things to my hair.

L'occitane hand creams - my hands never been softer.

Sephora brush cleanser - does a good job and very convenient.

Glamglow both masks!

Ole henriksen truth serum - my must have, I can't live without this thing. 

Dermatologica pre-cleanse oil - removes all my makeup very well!

Ole Henriksen face cream

Guerlain mascara and lipstick ( I have several already :smileyhappy: )

I tried very hard :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Empties

I love it!  I have so many sample size items, as well, which was my motivation for posting in this thread.  I really needed to start burning through my current stash, instead of constantly acquiring more!

Re: Empties

This is what I'm trying to do :smileyhappy: They all take so much space too, and it actually saves you money to go through samples first :smileyhappy:

I feel eel like in forgetting something.. But here are my empties for the month. 

 

Love: the Ouidad! 

Maybe: shiseido  eye cream, Ren mask, TBS Brazil nut oil (smells ANAZING!) I liked the Korres Wild Rose but it seemed too heavy for my skin. I'm using the yogurt sleeping facial now, so it depends on how I like that. 

Nope: purity made simple, BBW Fresh Picked Lemon body cream

 

there were some foils too, but I forgot about them and they weren't amazing anyways

I have the world's frizziest hair.  I've been meaning to try that shampoo.  Glad to read a nice review.

It was good! I really like the hair gel that came in the set. It wasn't really HG status for me, but one of the better products I've found. Especially with how my hair reacts to summer humidity.

Re: Empties

I was going to buy those Sephora masks and put them away when the SA had no clue that ordering promos were available in the store.  I had been wanting to try that Bliss body balm.  Thanks to your review, I will hold off.

beauty2sample

Re: Empties

The balm is dense and I did not find it moisturizing at all.  It also required alot of product to cover the skin adequately.  I am so spoiled by Josie's body butter, that I was glad when the Bliss one was empty.  As for the masks, I have them all, but I can't tell a difference between any of them.  I would still throw them in an order if I was trying to hit a minimum, but I wouldn't repurchase them separately on their own.

Glad you gave the GlamGlow for eyes another go.  Sorry it did not work better for you this time.
